  1. That's the one with Khan, right?

  2. Meh. Uncanny Tarkin aside, I actually really liked it.

  3. Honest Trailers, even if they don't love the movie they're doing, love movies. And they treat the subjects the same whether the movie was good or not. (Though they do have a few where they just have to admit the movie is fantastic and then do what they can.)

    They've even sat down with the directors and actors several times and discussed the "Honest Trailer" and everybody takes it in good humour.

    I don't think coming up with funny things and connections in a fake trailer qualifies at "point and laugh" as someone suggested above. (Everything Wrong With USED to tread this line, but in recent years is just mostly nitpicking without much wit and increasingly calls out things actually addressed in the movies if they paid attention.)

    I had no problem with Tarkin, but Leia's closeup was a bit creepy. Her, but not quite.

    On the whole I loved Rogue One a lot. It's one of the top-3 Star Wars movies. It's everything Star Wars should be.
